So dear elisi, I believe I have a working title for all these drabbles. At this moment in time; since it became blindingly obvious that so many of these titles involved shadows, it shall be known as the Shadows series. Of course this may develop, but it will certainly do for now. I shall also need some thought on why, and whether Tara should, be passing Dawn's secret on. My muse is telling me that it comes from something in Tara's past, or psyche; further thought is needed though.
TITLE: Shadows and Reflections
FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
CHARACTERS: Lisa's Dad; Tara;
SUMMARY: Right, or wrong; parent or no, sometimes difficult choices have to be made.
A/N: Tara's been in some dark places; had to make some hard choices to survive. Easier for her to make them where the lives of others are involved.
Queueing, he contemplated what Tara Maclay had told him; eyes closed he tried not to worry, also wondering about getting a pastry.
“Can't protect them forever.” He jumped.
“S-sorry, what did, “
“I have to pee; couldn't get me a green tea?”
Shaking, he nodded. Watching her make her way to the toilets he wondered if she was British, like his wife had been; when he met her.
Which led his thoughts back to his daughter, and the news that the girl she was in love with; no way he was about to fool himself there, was only a few months; possibly weeks old.
Goddess watch over us all,
